The Honors Program is pleased to announce the winners of the first annual Commonwealth Honors Project Prize Competition, which was judged at yesterday’s Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity:
Welcome to the start of pre-registration!
This is just a reminder that, in many cases, it is possible to convert a regular seat in a course with embedded honors seats to an honors seat. If you are registering for a course with embedded honors seats and all honors seats are taken, just register for a regular seat and e-mail me or Dr. Weierman to let us know that you’d like to take the course for honors. We will then ask the professor’s permission to add the honors seat.
Good luck with registration—feel free to contact us with any other questions or problems as well.
The American Antiquarian Society is one of the world’s leading archives in American history and culture… and it’s right here in Worcester. The American Studies Seminar is a phenomenal experience and would count as an honors course. They are still accepting applications, so please contact Dr. Weierman or Dr. Tom Conroy (firstname.lastname@example.org) right away if you are interested.
The next meeting of the statewide Massachusetts Commonwealth Honors Student Council is Friday afternoon, May 2nd at Quinsigamond Community College. Over 20 honors students from around the state attended the fall meeting, and we’d love to see some WSU involvement. Please contact Dr. Weierman if you are interested in attending.
Be sure to check out Dr. Shartin’s PH 260-H1: Philosophy of Science!
This course critically investigates such questions as: What distinguishes sciences from pseudo-sciences? When is a theory confirmed? What is a law of nature?
